page permalinks broken in upgrade to 2.0 - without htaccess (3 posts)

    Hi, I bit the bullet and upgraded from 1.5 to 2.0 today, but now some pages don't load properly. You can see the problem if you go to http://www.surrealroad.com/digital/ and try any of the pages labelled "digital intermediate..." (or any of its subpages)
    What happens is that "Error 404 - Not Found" is displayed where the actual content should be.
    I'm not using .htaccess (nor was I for WP 1.5), so the custom structure I'm using is:
    /index.php/%year%/%postname%/
    which seems to work for posts but not all the pages

    After reading dozens more posts on this subject, I tried various things. So far, I have found only one fix: if I manually change the post slug to something completely different then it works.
    For instance, if I change from
    "digital-intermediate-glossary"
    to
    "digital-intermediates-glossary"
    then it is still broken, but if I change it to
    "glossary"
    it works.
    Is some sort of truncation happening somewhere?
    Anyway, for now I have a temporary fix, but I don't want to leave it this way, because of external links/search engine indexes.
    Can anyone shed some more light on this?

    Well- looks like I have the solution-- downgrading to 1.5
